to blow up a u.s. jetliner and says it will keep trying. plus cbs news uncovers disturbing web postings that show the suspect was a lonely young man who harbored jihad fantasies for years. i'm harry smith. also tonight the security failure. there were warnings from the suspect's own family. he was on a watch list so why didn't anyone check to see if he had a u.s. visa? president obama calls for a full review. and there's confusion in some airports amid the new security crackdown. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with katie couric. >> smith: good evening. katie is off. president obama says u.s. authorities will not rest until they find everyone involved in the attempt to blow up delta northwest flight 253 on christmas day. the terror trail leads straight to the middle east. today an al-qaeda group based in yemen said it supplied the explosives to suspect umar farouk abdulmutallab and claimed the bombing attempt failed due to a technical problem. mr. obama pledged on the a complete review of the watch list system to prevent other potential terrorists from enterin
of the device. and petn is the same substance the shoe bomber tried to use eight years ago. all of this is happening on today, as it's one of the busiest travel days of the year. passengers around the world are dealing with tighter security than ever because of christmas day. airlines are implementing slight variations, but generally the restrictions require more freak check ones with bags, and no blankets or personal items on the lap, and no touching of carry on baggage, and no using of rest rooms unless escorted by a crew member. and how are passengers doing? kara, i have to tell you the whole long list of the do nots in the last hour of flight sounds like a real pain? apparently we are having a little trouble with kara's microphone and we'll get her back. she is talking about how passengers have been coping with the new rules, and coping well although there are big changes. >>> if the christmas day bombing suspect was on a terror watch list why wasn't he stopped from boarding a plane from detroit? how was he able to get explosives on the plane? we are going to talk about what
the intelligence breakdown that allowed a suspected bomber aboard a u.s. airliner. it is the same problem identified immediately after the attacks of september the 11th. that was eight years ago. and after more than eight years, and billions of dollars expended, the president in a very matter of fact tone yesterday said, america's security system is still not fully up to date. >> there were bits of information available within the intelligence community that could have and should have been pieced together. we've achieved much since 9/11 in terms of collecting information that relates to terrorists and potential terrorist attacks, but it's becoming clear that the system that has been plain place for ys now is not up to date to take advantage of the information we collect and knowledge we have. >> this morning we're learning just how far the alleged christmas bomber's father went to alert american authorities about his son. it terns out the father met with the cia, that vital piece of information never made it to the people who might have prevented him from getting on that plane. here's our
it is available. >>> president obama is now the third u.s. president to receive the nobel peace prize. he acknowledged the honor comes at an ironic time as the commander in chief just ordered more troops in to afghanistan. charlie d'agata has more from oslo, norway. >> reporter: president obama accepted the nobel peace prize in norway as a war-time president in the midst of two battles. >> one of these wars is winding down. the other is a conflict that america did not seek. >> reporter: the honor comes just a week after the president announced plans to send 30,000 more u.s. soldiers to fight in afghanistan. >> i come here with an acute sense of the costs of armed conflict. filled with difficult questions about the relationship between war and peace and our effort to replace one with the other. >> reporter: norwegian security teams are on guard across oslo for war protesters and say a president at war shouldn't be honored for peace. normally nobel peace prizewinners stay for three days of festivities in oslo but he even turned down a lunch with the king here in oslo to get back to the busi
's in our washington newsroom. pete, good evening. >> reporter: brian, though some u.s. intelligence officials say there wasn't enough to go on to put the man accused of the bombing on a watch list, president obama, nonetheless, believes there was. and we're hearing new details tonight from a passenger who was on that plane. a maryland real estate consultant still has his boarding pass from the christmas day flight to detroit. he sat across the plane and one row ahead of the man charged with trying to blow it up. gona says he was among the first to notice the smoke and yell for help. >> most of the passengers started to panic. there was a lot of ladies around, and they start panicking. one specific one sitting on my left, on the aisle of the middle section, she was screaming, i don't want to die. i don't want to die. i want out. >> reporter: a detroit man snapped this picture of the spot where investigators say umar farouk abdulmutullab tried to set off his explosives. but president obama says the u.s. intelligence system should have noticed something was wrong much earlier. back in
with chemicals and a syringe much like what was found on umar farouk adulmutallab. u.s. officials are investigating whether there are any possible links between those thwarted attac attacks. the dutch government announced today it will begin using those controversy quality body scanners in amsterdam on all passengers who board flights to the united states. officials in yemen are vowing to hunt down members of al qaeda in their country until that terror group is eliminated. >>> president obama has demanded at least a preliminary finding by tomorrow of the failures that led to that bomb getting on the plane christmas day. the political pressure on the president is building. former vice president dick cheney today launching a harsh criticism accusing the president of pretending the u.s. is not at war. nbc's chief white house correspondent and political director chuck todd is in honolulu and joins us live. a pretty biting harsh assessment from dick cheney today. any reaction from the obama camp? >> you know, there isn't much of a reaction from them. they are used to the fact that pret
